Warwickshire / "LEAMINGTON PRIORS" (Royal Leamington Spa)
« on: Thursday 28 January 21 06:39 GMT (UK)  »
Can someone tell me what kind of reason might a married woman (states she was born Middlesex, City, London) and her 17 year old son (states born Middlesex, Hampstead) have for being on the 1851 UK census for Warwickshire as Head, Lodger, Merchant's wife - Address 4 Portland Place, Leamington Priors....? 

I can now see that the entry above the one I mentioned is the same address and shows a widowed Lodging House Keeper and a House Servant.

Which seems to indicate the lady I'm interested in could possibly be wealthy

If it happens to be the lady I have in mind, her husband was a Merchant Banker, and she was actually born in Guernsey, Channel Islands, but definitely would have BEEN OF London, City.

Her husband was not there with her.

And she would have been 4 months pregnant.

A second son was born 10 August 1851  St Peter's Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands
(Where his mother was born)

Look forward to feedback as no knowledge of Leamington Priors or Royal Leamington Spa and what was offered or provided.

Lancashire / Birth Mary Gallagher 1860 Manchester (possibly Chorlton)
« on: Tuesday 01 December 20 11:15 GMT (UK)  »
Hi there from down under.
I have a strange situation regarding the 1861 UK census.
The family of James GALLAGHER and his wife Eleanor is listed at 21 Smith Street, Ardwick. 
With them is Mary aged 1 daughter born Manchester and Mary BENT Eleanor's mother.
1. I have not been able to locate a BIRTH for Mary.
2. My Great Grandmother Emma was born to James and Eleanor 6 April 1860.
She is not shown on the 1861 census with her parents, sister Mary and Grandmother Mary BENT.
Any suggestions....?
I should have added that I have the Birth Certificate for Emma 6 April 1860.
Have checked freebmd, ancestry, GRO for BIRTH of Mary 1860 -  but have not located her - or a DEATH, as she is not any further census records with the family either.
James and Eleanor were married 10 Oct 1859 Manchester Cathedral. Eleanor emigrated to Australia in 1875 with their 8 children - Emma, Amelia, Edward, Harry, Amelia, Annie, Elizabeth and Maude Mary. James had travelled to Australia ahead of her.
Thanks in advance.

Clare / Help with old numbers 1828 1829
« on: Tuesday 17 November 20 12:35 GMT (UK)  »
Hi there from Down Under
Can anyone direct me to a site where I could see examples of old Irish numbers....?
The era would be for a document in County Clare -1828 or 1829.
Thanks in advance.

I may not be in the right area for this enquiry....?

I have information from [email protected] that the record I would like to be able to access is available.
See below:
Minute book for Edinburgh 16 Jul 1829-12 Mar 1830 (ref: JC8/24) regarding Donald McDONALD accused of the crime of theft. Consisting of 3 pages. He was found guilty and sentenced to transportation for a period of seven years.
There may also be a bundle of case papers, "processes" or "process papers" (no details on whether or not).
It would be great if anyone could help me with this.
Donald McDONALD was my Great Great Grandfather - he served his sentence in NSW, Australia.
Regards from Down Under (where it is currently pouring with rain)

Hi there from Qld.
Wondering if anyone is able to access a Western Australia Marriage apart from ordering a certificate...?
Just in case, details follow:
Groom - PARKER, Herbert Bride - PETER, Emma.
Place of Marriage - Perth.
Registration No. 698 Registration Year 1896

Sometimes Family History groups or similar may have access, but if not, then I will order the certificate.

Thanks in advance.

I have 2 entries from New South Wales, Australia, Assisted Immigrant Passenger Lists, 1828-1896 re John BOYD and his wife Elizabeth - from Leith, Scotland, arrived Sydney, NSW 21 April 1840 on the ship "CLYDE" as part of the A B Smith Bounty Scheme.

Great to have, but some of the handwriting is not easy to decipher  ???

We have ideas on the wording, the main issue is the name of John BOYD's mother ...?
This section - "A native of Leith Scotland - Son of Jno Ship Carpenter same place, and ? ? ? ? ? ? his wife there."

Any assistance would be welcome.  :)

2 image files attached.

Thanks in advance.

Not sure if this is where to post my query  ???
My Scottish ancestors were seagoing folk and I'm wondering if there is a way to trace which chaps sailed on which ships, when and where to....?
I have one seaman in particular at the moment - my 3 x Great Grandfather John PETER who I am attempting to lock into some new information as belonging to me.
We knew he was deceased prior to 1846 and new information has appeared for a sailor/mariner of that name:
1.   “The 1842 burial register records that he was a seaman on the ship Hastings”. (fmpast)
2.   Plus an (ancestry) burial record for John PETER, see below:
“India, Select Deaths and Burials, 1719-1948
Name: John PETER
Gender: Male
Age: 42
Birth Date: 1800
Burial Date: 29 Dec 1842
Burial Place: Colabah, Bombay, India
FHL Film Number: 523842”
The 2 sets of information make it seem likely but nowhere does it state he was of Scottish origin, or where his ship originated.
Any suggestions that could lead to connecting these records to John PETER born 22 Dec 1799, Tulliallan, Perth, Scotland, wife Janet nee BOYD, with 1 son James PETER, 1 daughter Margaret PETER would be much appreciated.
